Musical Monday: The Perfect Mother’s Day Gift

Saturday night, my family and I enjoyed a delicious dinner at Bahama Breeze and then drove over to Clearwater Beach to catch a glimpse of one our beautiful Florida sunsets.



Watching my children play in the sugar white sands of Clearwater Beach with a gorgeous sunset as a backdrop was truly the best gift ever and the amazing songs that played on XM’s The Coffee House captured the mood of the evening superbly.

But the smiles on everyone’s faces that night was the ribbon that tied the whole package together for the perfect Mother’s Day gift.

    Clearwater Beach was the first place I ever saw dolphins jumping in and out of the water and where seagulls nearly attacked us over our food.

    Glad you had a lovely Mother’s Day! Beautiful sunset!!

    I’m thoroughly jealous as it turned cold here yesterday. Clearwater is awesome. Been there once. Spent a week on Bradenton Beach a couple years ago…love that whole gulf shoreline…hope the oil stays away…
    Nick Drake…there’s a blast from the past. And the Cowboy Junkies are always a good bet…
